This month, we will hear from two speakers:
1. Dr. Michael Charette (Brandon University) – Just what we need… the DEAD-box like Utp25 protein is pseudoenzyme, a new family of zombie enzymes

Going forward, seminars will be held on the first or second Tuesday of the month (9am PT/12pm ET) and will run from November 2023 through June 2024. Each seminar will include a 15-minute talk from a CSMB trainee and a 30-minute presentation from a PI highlighting their research.
